the curtain column you say the gop now belongs to senators marco rubio and rand paul. how so? >> you might as well call it the rand/rubio party, because the energy, the excitement and the power in the republican party is now outside washington and the clearest place to see this is on immigration. on the show in last couple of days we have seen senator rand paul moving toward friendliness of immigration reform and marco rubio in the past has expressed support for it. if they come out with tough, real immigration reform is how it will get to the president's desk. if they are for it, house republicans who are still reluctant are not going to want to get to the right of them. a sign of resistance there is still in the house, house republican that we talked to said there is a hispanics panic among the party elite donors and leaders and take senator paul and rubio to bring them along. >> hispanics paunnic? one way to put it. >> we have this brown guy running in georgia. he is the one that says barack obama follows the soviet constitution! >> soviet constitution? >> not even the russian constitut
these issues into the normal structural debate inside a place like the senate. if you look at rand paul's filibuster of a week ago, let's remember two things. he was talking about drones, but ask yourself why. what was he filibustering? -- he wast filibustering a nomination. it seems over and over again the only way people can raise these issues inside the senate is to question a nomination, whether it is senator hagel for the a, the confirmation hearing to bring them up, or if you are lucky, to t an amendment on the floor to debate these issues that are really central to our foreign policy, which is what i attempted to do along with senator corker of tennessee with respt to the libya situation. we need to have a full discussion on issues such as drones, and another piece of the drones issue here in the united states -- and this is where i have been aligned in the past with what senator paul, senator lee, and people on the i wouldic side, too -- call libertarians, people who are concerned about individual rights. when you look at the issue of apprehending, taining , iricans on american
or men or/and women. >> sean: and the republican as well. >> rand paul changed his position on immigration reform. >> let's-- it's too complex, this subject, to go to another one. >>. >> it's equal opportunity on hypocrisy here. >> and the repercussions of changing the definition of marriage. something progressives, liberals, leftists, whatever you want to call them do regularly. they have a very strong sense of compassion, they make a policy, the policy often and usually doesn't work, but it doesn't matter because it's stage one thinking. leftism is rooted in the heart. i have as much compassion for gays as the president, but i don't want to redefine marriage to state that-- >> we're talking about a policy position though, not the flip-flop as you call it or the changing of the mind. >> sean: you know why you're so-- hang on a second. you know why you're so committed to the flip-flop issue you're for the guy who says i voted for it before i voted against it. >> and you know how that sounds, i voted for the 87 billion before you-- >> i know you've worked in the private secto
. republican senator rand paul put his support behind comprehensive immigration reform today. during a speech at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, the kentucky republican said the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants should have a legal way to stay in the u.s. >> we will find a place for you. this cause, however, those who work for reform must understand that a real solution must ensure our borders are secure. we must also treat those who are here already with understanding and compassion without also unduly rewarding them for coming illegally. >> sreenivasan: bipartisan efforts are under way in both the house and senate to overhaul u.s. immigration laws. today speaker of the house john boehner called the house version a "pretty reasonable solution." the number of americans dying from alzheimer's disease has increased by 68% in the last decade. according to the alzheimer's association, one in three seniors have some form of dementia when they die, and the disease accelerates the progression of other life- threatening conditions. because alzheimer's has no cure or treatment to slow symp
through paul ryan's budget plan. the republicans, if they want that to happen, to get ryan's plan through, they're going to have to during one of the cr's or debt ceiling debates, they are going to have to shut the government down. we still take in 2.7 trillion, will pay for medicare, social security, will pay off our debt, the full faith and credit of the united states, but isn't that the only way that ryan's budget gets done? >> no, no, not at all. ryan's budget, you know, we're going to have a series of sequential battles. what's going to happen is the democrats in the senate are going to ultimately pass some kind of a budget resolution. i doubt it's going to be like this one. republicans in the the house are going to pass the budget committee resolution and these set levels for all of the appropriations committee allowing for protection and that is to say you can have expedited consideration of appropriations bills that fall under that level. the republicans are going to pass bills that have spending lower than the democrats. the democrats are going to have bills, they're higher than
who thought that. i think paul wolf wit would have been a proponent of that, that you could create a democracy ino iraq and have a catalytic effect on the region. but, you know, before we go totally from one extreme to the other, that, you know, nothing-- that history has actually comeng to an end and nothing can change in iraq. you know, in the glass one-quarter full side, they had elections. the u.n. validated the results. they weren't fraudulent. they were a lot more honest than they were in afghanistan. they have a parliament. the council of representatives. they passed a budget recently. there is political life in iraq. it's--y. it's-- whatever malikis an authoritarian figure but he's nothing like a saddam by anybody's estimation. so i just-- while there are reasons to be concerned in iraq and reasons to worry about the future, i don't think we should paint an entirely dark picture. and i think if you asked iraqis you'd get different perspectives. if you asked the kurds, i think they're glad there was the invasion. they have more autonomy than they've ever had before, having r
paul ryan that would have cut programs such as medicaid and food stamps. the nigerian literary icon chinua achebe has died and at the age of 82. his novels, including the highly celebrated "things fall apart," provided a counterpoint to the colonial depiction of africa and helped give voice to a continent. in 2008 during a celebration of his birthday at the library of congress, chinua achebe was asked how the groundbreaking novel, published in 1958, had changed him. writinge process of "things fall apart, >> what it changed my life. because i had to invent the language of that story. something that anybody was teaching anywhere. the conversation between evo and english. make it up as i went along. >> chinua achebe died in boston after a brief illness. and those are some of the headlines. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. of the financial world are on the small mediterranean island of cyprus today. the government of cyprus has brokered a last-ditch $13 billion bailout deal with european officials to stave off the collapse of its ba
there was only one sentence on the subject in senator rubio's speech last week, the left's blogosphere from paul krugman on down exploded with rage. idiotic! thoroughly refuted, and the perennial favorite, it's a lie, was the way rubio's comment was characterized. my aei colleague, ed pinto -- who's right here in front of me -- and i were once accused by joe nocera in his new york times column of using the big lie tech meek for suggesting that the government -- technique for suggesting that the government had a major role in the financial crisis. it doesn't get much worse than being compared to joseph goebbels. [laughter] most americans have no idea that there is an alternative view of what caused the financial crisis. the result is an odd gap in public discourse on this issue. as an illustration, when i am interviewed about the financial crisis, i am often asked why no bankers have been sued personally or tried criminally for causing the crisis. i usually respond by saying i don't think that the bankers actually caused the crisis. this appears to interviewers -- to leave these interviewers dumb
